Wondering if you guys think it is time for an upgrade or if I am just fine. I usually try to run 1900x1200. Am a gaming junkie so anything new and graphics intensive, I am buying.

FPS, RPGs and MMorpgs.

Think my power supply is 550w??

I am not partial to AMD so will be interested in GeForce as well. Don't really want to spend more than $250.

I was looking at benchmarks and noticed the High End Benchmark showed a GTX 480 at the top of the list and only $229. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

The thing is I notice most listed are around $400 and this one is 229. Is it lower quality??

you will probably need a new PSU since most systems only came with a 300W PSU
